Krabi is a beautiful province in the southwestern region of Thailand, known for its marvelous beaches, crystal-clear sea water, and exciting nightlife scene. When you come to Krabi, you’ll never be short on things to do, as there are so many different activities and places to go to keep you entertained.


If you’re planning to pay the tropical province a visit, here are three things that you have to include in your travel plan:


1. Visit Tub Kaek Beach

Tub Kaek Beach is filled with quite a number of exciting activities that you can enjoy. You can start the day off by trekking up to the Tiger Temple on top of the Tub Kaek hill. Keep in mind that this won’t be an easy walk, so make sure you pack enough water to get you through the journey. Once you’re at the top of the hill, you can see the entire Tub Kaek Beach and the entire surrounding area. Once you’ve made your way down, enjoy a traditional lunch at one of the many nearby restaurants before getting started on the beach activities. We recommend that you give the banana boat a try, as that’s a fun and exciting experience that everyone can enjoy.


2. Krabi Island Hopping

There are many great islands located in the Andaman Sea and Krabi is the best place to get started on your island hopping adventure. The province is located in the center of the Andaman Gulf, which gives it easy access to the numerous islands. Some famous islands such as Chicken Island, Koh Tub, Koh Poda, and Koh Mor are a few places that you must not miss. All of them have distinct characteristics and attractions that you will surely love, so we recommend you give them all an equal amount of time.


3. Cliff Climbing at Railay Beach

The landscape surrounding Krabi is quite mountainous, making it the best place for climbers to come and enjoy their day full of adventure. If you’re looking to start your rock climbing journey, Railay Beach is the best place to start. The south side of the beach is where you will find a limestone cliff that’s perfect for climbing, which makes it the most popular location for climbers of every skill level. You can purchase a rock climbing package from Krabi town which will take you to all the best climbing spots around the province. If you love cliff climbing, we recommend that you check them out.


What Do I Need to Bring When Coming to Krabi?

Now that you know where to go while you’re in Krabi, here are six essential items that you should pack:


1. Reef Safe Sunscreen

Regular sunscreen is made from oil and other chemicals and at high quantity, it can cause significant damage to the environment. Therefore, you need to make sure that the sunscreen and every skin product you use is safe for the environment to ensure that the reefs aren’t damaged when you go swimming there.


2. Electrical Outlet Adapter

You should check the type of plugs you have in your country before you come to Thailand. If it’s a different type of outlet, make sure you bring an adapter along.


3. Reusable Water Bottle

When you’re heading anywhere, you don’t want to spend too much money on drinking water, so it’s best that you bring a reusable water bottle to bring around with you. This will also help to protect the environment and reduce the amount of waste you produce as you travel.


4. Insect Repellant Spray

When you’re traveling to a tropical country, biting and stinging insects are always something that you have to worry about. We recommend you bring insect repellent along to keep yourself safe throughout the trip, especially if you’re planning to go out at night.


5. Activated Charcoal

Thai food is known for its heat and spiciness, so if you have a weak stomach, activated charcoal will help to alleviate your stomach pain and bowel problems. You can never be too safe when it comes to this type of thing, so be sure to bring a packet or two along on every trip.


6. Travel Insurance

You don’t want to be responsible for any type of injury or illness while you’re on your trip, so make sure you get some insurance ahead of time to minimize the impact of any issues.
